Dear gentoo sci community,

One problem with our sci packges is the slow stabilization of them.
That's why I ask you for your help.
What we need are two kind off things:

First off all people who file stabilizing requests for sci packages in
https://bugs.gentoo.org so that we recognizing what works good in daily
use. All you need to do for this, is simply, if your are using packages
which are ~arch and they are behaving fine, just hop over to bugzilla
and file a stabilizing bug, noting what your experiences with these
packages are. The rest will be done by the bug wrangling team and the
corresponding developer.

Second needs are arch tester. To assist the teams who stabilize our
package you can build and use the packages in question following their
guidelines [1,2] and report your experience. Especially users on rare
arches starting with ppc & ppc64, but also all others are _very_ welcome.

Thanks for your help, justin
